    Though not dithpicable, this game is merely average compared to other third-person action-adventure titles for the PlayStation.

    At this price and with these features, "Microsoft Golf 2001 Edition" cannot be ignored.

    A squad-level shooter that's easier to get into than "Rainbow Six" and tons more fun.

    Suffers from limited gameplay and a few glitches, but it's a worthwhile title that most Frogger fans will enjoy.

    Unfortunately, the experience isn't very exciting -- although the table variations may may spice up the game, they only add novelty value.

    Pretty and promising, "F1 World Grand Prix" stands as a good middle ground between arcade and simulation open-wheeled racing.

    We won't bleat around the bush -- in terms of shear gameplay, Sheep is a letdown.

    Even with the game's wealth of gameplay modes and excellent sound, the developers' failure to provide analog support and to improve the game's frame rate really hampers the franchise.

    Rare isn't breaking any new ground with Mickey's Speedway USA; in fact, it's covering the same ground as the kart racers before it, only not as well.

    Aquality game, though it does suffer from a "been there, done that" feeling.

    The best NBA hoops game on the system.

    An imperfect FPS that is too much Psycho Circus, not enough KISS.

    A light and fluffy offering that's just right for kids, albeit a bit too shallow for more mature gamers looking for a challenge.

    By no means a bad game, but it's going to require a lot more than a quick tune-up and lube job if it ever wishes to turn the corner and become a great PS2 racing game.

    Frequent and unexplained crashes, constant lockups, myriad bugs, and an insane difficulty level mar what otherwise could have been an outstanding and addictive adventure on the high seas.

    An entertaining racer, but it could have been much better had Infogrames beefed up the difficulty a notch (or at least given the player the choice to do so).

    A good game. Real-time fans may like it, and turn-based gamers will like it. And no one will deny that it is unique. If you're a big fan of the series, this fourth installment is a must-buy.

    Despite its graphical and play control shortcomings, Wizards & Warriors is a good dungeon romp that stands shoulder to shoulder with those RPG classics of yore.

    If you're looking for an over-the-top football title with some massive mayhem, go play "NFL Blitz 2000" instead. Leave this one on the shelf.

    Despite its flaws and little imperfections, it still manages to deliver a fun gaming experience...though we can't help but feel that it's missing something...(multiplayer).

    As a patch it would be near-perfect; it successfully addresses several key concerns, adds one seriously compelling new element, and generally turns a very good racing experience into an exceptional one. Certainly, this is the game EA should have released in the first place.

    If you have the patience to endure the somewhat slow opening and outdated graphics, you will be rewarded with an intriguing gaming experience.

    Improved graphics and new modes and characters are combined with solid gameplay that's been tweaked for the better to make for a dependable and entertaining sequel.

    On paper, the idea sounds great (and the game has been a huge hit in Europe), but the final product flat out stinks.

    The Bowl selection in GameBreaker is nowhere near as authentic as it is in EA Sports' title (which means no Orange, Fiesta, or Sugar Bowls), you won't find the official BCS ranking poll, and you won't find a situation creator.

    Paradigm has done an excellent job of re-creating a cartoon universe with colorful characters, hilarious animation, and eye-popping visuals that are fun for all ages.

    The undersea environment it uses is appealing and fun to explore, especially since the open maps of the game facilitate fairly nonlinear exploration.

    Fails in so many areas that the entire experience ends up being one long exercise in frustration.

    A great story-driven game that takes elements of several genres to create a worthwhile experience.
